She searches for words elusive as wisps of smoke scattered

by a sudden gust of wind.

Wincing, her brows furrowed,

as if the very task of clutching at forgotten phrases causes pain.

Such a strong voice once

Now stilted by growing uncertainty of word’s purpose

Word’s origin

Word’s meaning

How can she share her fear of losing her voice

If No one is listening
